: Thank you
To my knowledge, there are no 30x30 shower stalls made. There are many much more knowledgeable folks that post here; perhaps Terry or one of the others will know of something that is not commonly available in stores. Baring that, what you may have to do is construct your own using tile.
I'd look at the possibility of "finding" the 2" you need by being creative with the studs. If you have 2x4 studs which are actually just 3 1/2" wide, remove them and replace with 2x4s ripped to 2-1/2" wide. You'd still have plenty of structural strength. Plumbing in the recesses could be a problem, but if only the two sides had to be skinnied up, you could put the hardware on the back where the original studs are. Think outside the box.
